I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great work life balance. Competitive compensation and benefits. Room to grow.

Cons

Old school punitive systems drive the wrong behavior.

Advice to Management

Get out in the field more - you are over reliant on scorecards. Servant leadership style is working but needs to be adopted by more high level people.

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company does something important to everyone. The people I worked with were dedicated and ethical. I joined at a time when sweeping reforms within the company were made with heavy hearts and open books.

    Cons

    When something goes wrong, the company's always on the front page of the newspaper. Even when things haven't gone wrong, it's a popular whipping boy for journalists, activists, and politicians of every stripe.

    Advice to Management

    I know you try to be "diverse" and "inclusive," but you really, seriously lay it on too thick. A little of that goes a long way.
